Shaun King, Kliff Kingsbury, and Tommy Maddox are all trying out for the Bucs Tuesday.

Todd Bouman and Stefan Lefors had tryouts in the last two weeks and are also possibility. The team is also said to be interested in Marques Tuiasosopo. Bouman looks like the best option in this group.

Colts release QB Shaun King.

Indianapolis will go with just two active quarterbacks for now. It's a good sign that backup Jim Sorgi's shoulder is fine.

Shaun King will battle for the Colts No. 3 quarterback position.

King, signed Friday after being cut by the Lions in late May, will compete with undrafted rookies David Koral and Josh Betts behind Payton Manning and injured top sub Jim Sorgi.

Colts signed QB Shaun King.

It looks like Lions coach Rod Marinelli did his old buddy Tony Dungy a favor by cutting King, their old Bucs QB. The greatest Tulane quarterback of all time will probably be the Colts' No. 3 quarterback and help take practice snaps while backup Jim Sorgi gets healthy.

Lions released Shaun King.

King was signed before Josh McCown and Jon Kitna as an insurance policy-type backup in the event the free agency period didn't go well. With Dan Orlovsky playing well, it was clear King wouldn't make the roster. The former Tulane second-rounder last started for the Cardinals in 2004.

Lions signed QB Shaun King.

The former second-round pick out of Tulane worked with head coach Rod Marinelli before in Tampa. The presence of Mike Martz makes any Lions quarterback worth watching, but King will have to battle just to win a roster spot.

After working out for the Patriots last week, QB Shaun King reportedly has a tryout scheduled with the Lions today.

It's unlikely that a QB has ever tried out for a team at a better time than King working out for Detroit after Joey Harrington's performance Sunday.

Free Agent QB Shaun King is expected to visit the Seahawks sometime this week.

This could be a good fit for both parties. King projects out similarly to Trent Dilfer. The difference being that Dilfer is a smarter quarterback while King is more mobile. If he signs with Seattle, King is only valuable as a backup quarterback for Matt Hassellbeck owners.

Cardinals released QB Shaun King.

He's turning into a journeyman... he hopes. King should get a job as a No. 3, but his upside looks gone as a starter.

Shaun King is likely to get cut following the acquisition of Kurt Warner.

The former Tulane star may make it to training camp, but the Cardinals are likely to go young with John Navarre at the No. 3 spot. Warner and Josh McCown have the first two spots locked.

Shaun King won't start for the Cardinals this week.

King put up similar stats to Josh McCown in his two starts. Now rookie John Navarre will get a shot.

Shaun King was pulled after completing 14-of-26 passes for 119 yards and an interception

Josh McCown was even worse in relief. Now what? The Arizona QBs are hurting the fantasy shine of Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald.

Shaun King will remain the starter at quarterback for the Cardinals for the foreseeable future.

Josh McCown did very little impressive in his time as a starter and King has a better arm. While he turned the ball over three times, King did move the ball decently. He's a below average QB2.
